Look at you, face down again
Same as before, and you know why this happens
At this point, there’s no real reason to believe
You don’t need eyes in the back of your head to see
This is the way you are, have always been
Ever the fool

To be young again….

Not wide awake, just narrow
Not open to the bows and arrows
Ever the optimist, you won’t be fooled again
You get knocked down, then get up again

In your coat of armor, you alone cultivate the land
And remove the daggers from others hands
You run the water, you soak their feet
You fill the cups, you make them drink
This is the way you are, have always been
Ever the leader, the consummate believer

Not wide awake, just narrow
Not open to the bows and arrows
Ever the optimist, you won’t be fooled again
You get knocked down, then get up again
This is who you are, this is what you do
when all else fails, ever the optimist
